About the Programs: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapeutic (CBT) approach is solution focused therapy that engages the individual in active thought regarding the connection between feelings and actions. The underlying premise is that thoughts cause feelings and behaviors, therefore, by changing our thoughts we can change behaviors and feelings. Moral Reconation Therapy – MRT is a CBT that has twenty years of research to support its effective treatment of a broad range of adult male offenders in both parole and incarcerated environments. Thus MRT is officially recognized as an evidenced-based therapy that can easily be adapted to our culture.
The term ‘moral’ refers to moral reasoning level based on Kohlberg’s levels of cognitive reasoning. The word ‘reconation’ comes from the psychological terms conative and conation, which refers to the process of making conscious decisions.
MRT is a cognitive- behavioral system that leads to enhanced moral reasoning, better decision-making, and more appropriate behavior. MRT was initially developed as the cognitive-behavioral component in a prison-based therapeutic community. Because of its remarkable success (notably with minority participants), the program was then tested and widely implemented in general inmate populations, with juvenile offenders, in parole and probation settings, in community corrections, in hospital and outpatient programs, in educational settings, and in drug courts. Measured objective outcomes were consistent in all settings. The program leads to increased participation rates, decreased disciplinary infractions, beneficial changes in personality characteristics, and significantly lower recidivism rates.
